question is, is there any answer from the obama administration. >> reporter: they are tackling this head on. they say this is all about politics. ofa does not accept donations from foreign nat nations or any ineligible individual. and the campaign voluntarily goes above and beyond federal election commitments to insure the integrity of fundraising efforts. they request proof of current and a valid u.s. passport. they say it's in order to comply with all federal election laws. martha,. martha: certainly at order odds with that report. thank you very much. bill: fox news alert right now. because there is new evidence we can report that the white house knew the attack on your consulate in benghazi was the work of terrorists long before admitting it to the american people. fox news learning that a top aid to the secretary of state hillary clinton, patrick kennedy is his name briefed congressional aids the day after the attack, september 12th calling it sophisticated and complex. u.s. ambassador chris stevens among four americans killed in the attack on 9/11. a hearing on what happened in bengha

differences between what a romney ad administration would look like and another four years of president obama might look like? >> even for a person who doesn't think badly of president obama's foreign policy i think it was useful because it reinforced america's need for engagement in the world. general scales was correct, there is military aspect to that which i personally may not consider necessary but i welcome the general tone of more engagement even if i don't think defense spending going up and. tired of wars. tired of unrest. discouraged by the anti-americanism, seen throughout broader islamic world and mood of come home america. let's mend our own problems and heal our own wounds for a while. that is understandable and partly i think right, if we take it too far we can get ourselves into trouble. governor romney arguing not for just more military spending but more effective foreign aid. better coordinated. arguing for a word dare i say sounds like nation-building. places like libya where he wants to do more to help countries get on their feet after revolutions before they have been thr
that is abandoned by the obama administration and it is important to support our allies like israel and support the opposition in syria and obviously touch on the libyan issue with regard to the benghazi attack and the death of four americans including the death of ambassador stevens and our role in the middle east, not being an observer but an active participant . making foreign policy work for the united states. >> steve: you will see the next debate on foreign policy. since the debate debacle for the president they blamed everybody. blaming mitt romney for being a liar . blamed jimm lehrer and even the guy who prepared the president. john kerry. he wants to be secretary of state and so he didn't get in the president's face. there is an item apparently the obama staff knew 10 minutes before it was all over on wednesday night that it was a debacle and convened a conference call and decided to go after romney and hit on big bird and all new ads to have a come back. >> gretchen: apparently the adpeople stayed up all might to have an adto go right away. when president obama was in hollywood . he
top jobs in three administrations most recently in the obama administration but also for the former presidents bush, one and two, i think. >> bush one, reagan -- yes. >> all the way back. >> you come with bonified credentials in foreign policy. let's talk about what this speech really indicated on syria. it seemed to me what mitt romney presented today was not to directly arm some. he was talking about working through allies. >> if you read the speech he'll work with allies to see that arms are provided. it's a passive voice. what i heard them saying to you is we'll be more active in terms of trying to make that happen. i think the longer we wait to do it, the harder it will be. >> you would go farther than mitt romney. >> i would. >> the administration is worried about the weapons getting into the wrong hands. >> it is a legitimate concern. what you have to do is focus heavily on identifying those you are prepared to work with, create tests for them. provide the weapons that would create less concern for us like anti-tank weapons as opposed to anti-air weapons. see how they operate
's wrong with the entire obama administration, they have a lack of ambition for this country and what it can and should do. but i would also say if he believes that, that tim geithner believes that a public sector job is equivalent to a private sector job. it's not that public sector jobs aren't important. teachers are important, firemen are important, nurses are important. but a public sector job doesn't pay for itself. taxpayers pay for it. a public sector job doesn't create other jobs. a private sector job pays for itself and creates other jobs. i frankly found his statement shocking. both because of its lack of ambition and because of its misunderstanding of what actually drives growth. it's not public sector jobs. >> let me ask you this, under reagan's recovery, were we laying off teachers and firefighters? were state governments laying off teachers and firefighters at this rate? >> no. absolutely not. >> well, that's part of the recovery. our unemployment is where we are right now if republican governors weren't slashing teach eshs and slashing first responders. >> that's a circ
're going it try to find those people who we can help with weapons, which is what the obama administration is doing. on the top line, he talks this big, strong, big stick game but he doesn't really seem to have a clue about how you would even do that in real life. >> he also -- >> steve i have to get to something dishonest here. i think everybody agreed with your hawk, middle of the road, or a dove, you will agree this is dishonesty here. in the two-state solution it's different what he says in public and behind closed doors to backers. here was romney today sounding reasonable, in fact, consistent with u.s. policy. let's take a look. >> i'll recommit america to the goal of a democratic, prosperous palestinian state living side by side in peace and security with the jewish state of israel. on this vital issue, the president has failed and what should be a negotiation process has devolved into a series of heated disputes at the u.n. in this old conflict as in every challenge we face in the middle east, only a new president will bring the chance to begin anew. >> ear here he is in may at tha
this issue he would not have been acting responsibly. the notion that the obama administration is attacking him for that, i think is just political distraction at its worst. megyn: you talked about the situation in syria and how we have been note any absent from that conflict. talked about how when there was a push for revolution in iran back in 2009, the president did not answer the call. does not resonate with the american people? it's the thought is should we have gotten involved in iran, should we have gotten involved in syria on the heels of being involved in iraq and stan were does that rest late with americans -- does that resonate with americans? >> the power america projects around the world has a direct impact on our life at home. the image and presentation that obama makes is of a weak and inattentive president. this is the argument that it's american strength that's provocative. what happens is whether it's the assad regime in syria or the ayatollahs in tehran. they look at a weak and inattentive president and recalibrate their policies to take advantage that weakness. those are
president reagan did in the czech republic. president obama seems to have missed that. he comes into these things late. his own administration describes him as leading by following. you don't lead by following. if you're following, you're following. that's what we see in seyria. that's what we saw in libya, in egypt. and now we see tremendous confusion on the part of this administration about what's really going on in the middle east. you look at libya, it's a scandal. i mean, what happened with libya is an absolute scandal of the b biggest proportions. i think only because the campaign is going on is it being held back. the white house, it seems to me, knew there was real danger to that ambassador. not only did they provide the security necessary, it sounds to me that they reduced the security, which is astounding. i don't know if that's true. one congressman told me that. if that's true, that's astounding. >> you saw secretary of state madeleine albright call romney speech full of platitude and free of substance. >> i'm sure the former secretary of state would say that. the re
